British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has made an urgent appeal to critics in his Conservative Party to convince them of his controversial Brexit course. “Let’s get the EU to take its threats off the table. Let’s get this law through, support our negotiators and protect our country,” Johnson wrote in a guest post for the Telegraph.
With the Single Market Act, which is being discussed in the House of Commons this week, the Prime Minister wants to undo the current exit treaty with the EU. The British government had admitted that it wanted to break international law with this move. The EU then asked London to withdraw the bill by the end of September at the latest. But the British government refused.
In a joint guest post for the Sunday Times The two former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and John Major criticized Johnson’s Brexit course with sharp words: “This kind of negotiation, in which reason is pushed aside in favor of ideology (…), is irresponsible, fundamentally wrong and dangerous in practice. ” The present draft law “calls into question the integrity of our nation”. According to media reports, around 30 Tory MPs have so far spoken out against the bill.
Johnson rose in his Telegraph– Contribution of serious allegations against the EU: Brussels is planning to set up a food blockade between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. The EU chief negotiator for Brexit, Michel Barnier, dismissed Johnson’s accusations on Sunday. The regulation on Northern Ireland anchored in the withdrawal treaty had been agreed with the Prime Minister and “does not pose a threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom”. The EU does not refuse to list Great Britain as a third country for food imports. To do this, however, the EU must know which import rules a country has.
A report from Telegraph According to Johnson is already planning another affront to the EU. The British government plans to no longer adhere to parts of the European Convention on Human Rights. The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg should no longer have to prescribe Great Britain.
